      Science-fiction has frequently depicted people directly interacting with life-size autostereoscopic images projected from the walls of buildings in public places. In this paper, we present a large modularized autostereoscopic ...
    • Feasibility Study of an Augmented Reality System for People with Dementia 

      Ferreira, Luis Duarte Andrade; Cavaco, Sofia; Bermúdez, Sergi (The Eurographics Association, 2018)
      While augmented reality (AR) can be valuable in therapy with people with dementia (PwD), when designing an AR system for PwD, it is important to understand how PwD interact with to such systems. Here we discuss an experiment ...

    • A Novel Approach for Cooperative Motion Capture (COMOCAP) 

      Welch, Gregory; Wang, Tianren; Bishop, Gary; Bruder, Gerd (The Eurographics Association, 2018)
      Conventional motion capture (MOCAP) systems, e.g., optical systems, typically perform well for one person, but less so for multiple people in close proximity. Measurement quality can decline with distance, and even drop ...
